York students collaborate on Bollywood Jazz Project

PhD students Beau Stocker, James Cave and Ben Eyes have collaborated with professional singer Supriya Nagarajan and musician Matt Redman on a world music project that brings together classical Bollywood themes and jazz music.  The project, backed by the Arts Council, has been devised by Supriya to bring Bollywood music to a new audience and has recently completed a successful UK tour with an international tour to follow.
The group recorded an album at the Department of Music’s SSL equipped Trevor Jones studios in two days. Ben Eyes, who engineered and produced the album assisted by PhD student Lynette Quek, then mixed and mastered the CD with a full turnaround of ten days.   As well as selling the CD the group have used the album as part of further promotion and to soundtrack videos of the project.
